Here’s a round-up of the latest Wellesley business news:
Verizon to call Linden Square home
Pretty soon Wellesley residents won’t have to slog all the way over to Route 9 when they want to update their Smartphones or pick up some new earbuds or a case. Verizon is coming to Linden Square, adjacent to the much-awaited Door No. 7 restaurant (Door No. 7 isn’t open yet, but it looks like they’re getting closer.)
Maybe Verizon will have some answers for Wellesley-ites about some of those dead zones in town, such as around the Wellesley Farms area.
And oh yeah, and we hear another bank is going to slide into the space next to Code Ninjas in Linden Square. More details to come.
Fat Face grand opening
British clothing store Fat Face, the latest addition to Church Square in Wellesley, will have its grand opening on Sunday, Dec. 2. You can ask them why they’re called Fat Face, and stuff like that.
The Wellesley Conservation Council (WCC) is raising money to support its missions, and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Help the WCC protect and preserve natural spaces in Wellesley; maintain sanctuaries open to the public for study and enjoyment; and educate youth and interest adults in matters of conservation.
The Wellesley Education Foundation is making an end-of-year fundraising appeal. The organization says, “with just one gift you can impact all 5,000 students in the Wellesley Public Schools. WEF funds initiatives that span across all grade levels and schools, reaching every student in the District. Your support can foster a genuine love of learning for all.”

Deborah: Will the Verizon store just handle Verizon phone or will it also include Verizon FIOS (internet and TV service)? Do you know when the store will open? Thanks!
Deborah Brown says
Patrick, I don’t know details, unfortunately. The fact that a new Verizon store is opening in Linden Square isn’t even up on the Verizon website. I just know because I walked by and saw their big ol’ sign in the window. The Federal Realty folks who manage the tenant at Linden Square also don’t know when Verizon is planning to open. The watchword seems to be “soon.” I’ll check back over there frequently and post new info as it becomes available. Deborah
